In case you live in Planet LAME and havent' heard, if you buy and register Mario Kart 8 on the Nintendo Network/Club Nintendo before July 31, you get a digital copy of one of the following games for free:

I'm so getting The Wind Waker HD.

Definitely looking sharp! Can't say this makes me want to get a Wii U though.

fuck, i already have the games in the 'free game' promotion

Currently Nintendo are producing the best AAA games on any platform IMO, a new Zelda would be the cherry!

I never thought I'd be interested in a Mario Kart game after the disappointing follow up to the wickedly good Double Dash that was Mario Kart Wii, but this is looking really really good.

Sorry but an inappropriate thought went through my mind the moment I saw pirate ship kart.

Baby rosalina and gold pink peach geez!! No diddy , funky or any kongs. Nintendo is seriously in a creative brankrupt state. Cant wait to see this bomb on may, it wouldnt suprise me if any of the playstation indies out sold this.

Taking the bait, sorry all.

While I too would not be too terribly surprised if this game was outsold in June, (it comes out the last day of May) your logic of the character choices being the reason is... well... holy shit.

I'm super stoked for this game, but it just makes me miss F-Zero all the more

@quemador: you really missed out on the Wii version. It was fantastic.

My theory of buying Mario Kart: If you own any Mario Kart, wait 3 iterations before buying a new one because not much has changed.

Posted by Fat_Tomato

I think I might need to hop on that bundle, especially with the free game for registering Mario Kart 8!

I'm with you. This game looks like a blast, but I got a feeling that Mario Kart is burying F-Zero with the anti-gravity gimmick. Which sucks because I want a new F-Zero!

I am sure glad that I do not live inside a planet. I prefer living on one. Personal preference I guess.

OT: Game looks fantastic. I am still not buying an WiiU.

I'd love a new F-Zero, but yes, Mario Kart mugging F-Zero for one of its distinguishing characteristics is not a good sign. At least it went out guns blazing with a stellar Gamecube title that still holds up pretty well visually. But it seems Captain Falcon and company have been put out to the Smash Bros pastures along with Fox McCloud, and Samus Aran because they warrant inclusion in a fan service game but no longer seem to warrant their own titles in Nintendo's eyes.

@benmo316: haha nice one! this game looks amazing though, im sure more people will buy the wii U just for this. I certainly would if i had the extra dough!
